Now, now. His face isn't long so much as his mind is narrow.
Elizabeth Warren could not have suffered from racism for her Native American heritage for which the special treatment of Native Americans is intended to compensate because no one knew of her Native American heritage, such as it is, until she announced it to qualify for that special treatment. Since the availability of such special treatment is limited, someone getting it who is not really deserving of it risks someone who was really deserving of it not getting it. Not admirably noble in my view. Liberals should be furious with her for subverting their good intentions rather than widely supportive of her despite her having done so.

Could it be that what the women's movement is fighting is the evolutionary necessity that members of the opposite sex of most any species are of equal value to each other and to life but generally inclined toward different talents, interests and capabilities?

What is the women's movement's explanation for why women find themselves in a battle to overthrow the dominance of the male gender to which they are at least equal and at best superior?
Defeating Al Franken should be as easy as defeating a yellow dog with a head full of self-absorbed adolescent angst but the reason there is a term such as 'yellow dog Democrat' is that it is not easy to defeat a Democrat for whom Democrats would vote even if he were a yellow dog.

We again we have a situation caused by the feckless foreign policy of this President which his supporters and apologists defend on the basis that his opposition doesn't have any good plan to resolve it either. The inane premise of this tactic is that you can avoid blame if you allow a situation to deteriorate to the point where no one can come up with a way to do anything productive about it.

That is why it is so clear than the left is being disingenuous as regards to immigrants. If they were really concerned about all that immigrants have, quite clearly, contributed to this country in the past they would spend at least some of their time and effort to impi9rve and streamline the legal immigration process.

"the government has legitimate functions that only it can do" That is true. We need government to do those things because no other agency can do them. Not because government does them well. Government does nothing well. That is why what it does needs to be limited.
